Though it's been said many times, many ways: not enough.

Or maybe it'd be better to say almost never too much?

I'll go for weeks without listening to the Dead. Usually, I've got some sounds going on. Sometimes it'll be NPR for a while, other times I'm running iTunes or the iPod with it just set to random. I've got lots of music, much of it is pretty good and I like most of it too, so it's like having my own private radio station.

Usually something in a recording will make me go, "Hey!" and then I'll listen to that artist / show / record for a few hours. With live Dead I usually have about a two show limit and I'll change it or get some quiet when I realise I'm no longer listening and / or hearing it.

I too, sometimes go for weeks without listening to the Dead. I find I just get too sad and sort of depressed at times.

The music brings back so many wonderful memories and certain songs just get me all emotional and bring tears to my eyes. I now live in Europe and miss everything about the music and the scene I was long part of. After listening to some great shows (and especially ones I attended) I get the blues and sometimes just want to pack my bags and go back to the Bay Area. I then listen to other music for a while until I get cheered up again.

Currently I am listening almost daily again as my 7 year old twins are huge Jerry fans and always requesting to hear certain songs. Their top 3 favorite songs are presently Fire on the Mountain, Cold Rain & Snow and Mountains of the Moon and they are 'trying' to learn them on guitar.

Sigh ...
